MARSHFIELD, Mass. – The New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) men's weekly awards were announced for games through Sunday, January 14.

Glenn Wiswell (Berwick, Maine) of Castleton University was recognized as the league's Rookie of the Week.

Player of the Week
Ryan Gouveia – Babson College
(Senior, Forward – Dartmouth, Mass.)

player Gouveia scored four goals to help Babson return to conference play with victories at Hobart and Skidmore over the weekend. The senior forward notched the game-winning goal at 13:35 of the third period in Friday's 4-3 triumph against the Statesmen, and then recorded his first career hat trick in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Thoroughbreds. Gouveia scored twice in the second period and tacked another goal late in the third to complete just the program's second hat trick since 2010.

Goaltender of the Week
Matt Pompa - Babson College
(Junior, Goaltender – Palm City, Fla.)

player Pompa stopped all 28 shots he faced to record his second shutout of the year in his only start of the weekend as Babson defeated Skidmore, 4-0, on Saturday. The junior netminder made 11 saves in the third period to earn his seventh win of the year while posting his seventh shutout in 35 career starts as the Beavers completed a weekend road sweep.

Rookie of the Week
Glenn Wiswell – Castleton University

player Wiswell had a strong week for the Spartans as he tallied three points on two goals and an assist. The freshman potted Castleton's lone goal in a defeat at NEC on Friday, at the time, tying the game at 1-1 in the second period. He followed that up with a career-high two points against Southern Maine on Saturday, dishing out the primary assist on the game's first goal and netting the game-tying goal late in the third period to help lead the Spartans back from a two-goal deficit and earn a point in a 3-3 draw.
